Basement Storage

These basement stairs also function as an extra computer space. Tip: Due to the nature of basement stairs, it is important to assess the stability of the stairs before adding any storage underneath.

Entryway Storage

Storage underneath an entry staircase is the perfect place to hide all the shoes, keys, backpacks and coats that always end up crowding the floor space next to the front door. This allows for grab-and-go access for often-used items.

Living Room Storage

Expand your living room space by adding an entertainment center under your stairs. Design by Alicia Friedmann

Kitchen Storage

This bar area was crafted under the staircase for maximum functionality, even featuring an under-the-counter refrigerator. The space can also be used as additional cabinet storage for your unending supply of cups and plates.

Pantry Storage

This small space from HGTV's Meg's Great Rooms features a pantry under the staircase for easy access as well as hidden storage.
